Advent Prayer: December 17-24, 2021

with Our Lady of the Angels Province Friar, Fr. Ed Ondrako, OFM Conv.

O Wisdom of our God Most High, guiding creation with power and love…

Come to teach us the path of knowledge!
Enable us, in turn, to teach our sisters and brothers Your path of knowledge.

Come to rescue us with Your mighty power!
May we use wisely the power of Your gift of freedom.

Come to save us without delay!
May we love without forgetting anyone.

Come and free the prisoners of darkness!
Who may search for substitutes to Your light.

Come to save us, Lord our God!
From pride deluding ourselves that we save ourselves.

Come and save man whom You formed from the dust!
As we as a Church evacuate doctrines and practices and drift towards the secular.

Come and shine on those who dwell in darkness and in the shadow of death!
Awaken the necessary retrieval today with the wisdom of our God Most High, wisdom containing jubilation and lamentation. Grace us with the wisdom of God to carry the work of the Word Made Flesh, ever forward, never backward!
